Love it! Absolutely love the fact that it is shot on location. Gives it such a ‘real feel’. Just hoping this ends up on TV real soon. I’m hooked and would gladly follow it there.

The opening episode was wonderful. It had all the elements of a great soap and then some. Everything came together to make it one of the best episodes I’ve ever watched. It makes me wish for next Thursday to come so I can see what else Gregori Martin has up his sleeve. He and the cast and crew can pat themselves on the back for a job well done.

Wow. I’m just starting to see these internet webisodes and I like them. It makes me want, more than ever, to purchase a TV with internet capabilities. I like how they have the ads at the end. I’d love to be rid of my TV/cable for good! Thank you Michael, for turning me onto to webisodes!

Okay, where do I even begin? I admit, I’m a day one fan of THE BAY. I loved every minute of Season 1 and Far From the Bay, and I’ve been counting the days until Season 2 started. But this premiere was beyond my wildest expectations!

First, Gregori has done an amazing job with this cast. Having to recast the role of Lee could have been a huge letdown, but Gregori did so seamlessly. And, adding in the likes of Jed Allan and Jackie Zeman just makes this an even bigger treat.

Next, visually this show was just stunning. Of course the outdoor shots at the Garrett mansion were gorgeous, but even the indoor shots at Zoey’s house and in the hospital were beautifully lit.

And the sound. Such a drastic improvement over Season 1!

Next the acting. These guys are pros. Each and everyone in this episode rocked it out — from Sara’s confusion, frustration and ultimate joy in seeing Lee…to Christine’s crazy little grin in that hospital corridor which sent chills down my spine. And Derrell — that boy nearly had me in tears. Bravo! Oh, and Jackie Zeman brought so much spunky zest to this new southern belle that I can’t wait to see more of Mrs. Madison.

Finally the writing. This is what a soap is supposed to be. Period.

Gregori, you have managed to do in 12 minutes and on a shoestring budget what none of today’s network soaps can do. You sucked us in, made us smile, made us cringe, made us sad…and just plain entertained the hell out of us. I can’t wait for next week…and I haven’t said that about a soap since…well since last season of THE BAY.

Well done. Well. Done!

So please, someone, tell me, is this show done in small amount of time? 12 minutes? A day? A week? Please advise.

Soaps Lift Boycott Threat Of Daytime Emmys

In a key move to allow those performers in front of the camera and behind the scenes crew and creatives to be acknowledged for their accomplishments this calendar year, the four daytime dramas collectively have decided to lift their threatened boycott and participate in the upcoming 46th annual Daytime Emmy competition.

This comes after the four network soaps (Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful, and The Young and the Restless) banded together after being unsatisfied with snafu’s coming out of the 45th annual Daytime Emmy Awards earlier this year in April, and a list of grievances and concerns they asked to be addressed by the organization that administers the Emmy contest.

Then, following an internal investigation by NATAS by the law firm of Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth of Washington, DC, the results which were released on November 8th, and being in receipt of their findings, the soaps decided to move forward while still having concerns they want addressed.

In a statement from the group, a spokesperson related to Deadline, who broke the story late Friday: “As a group, we are not in agreement with all of the conclusions that NATAS reached.  However, in the spirit of working with NATAS and the TV Academy on improving the integrity of the Daytime Emmys, we have lifted our boycott. We look forward to meeting with NATAS to discuss their findings and our concerns in greater detail.”

On Saturday, someone close to the situation said to Michael Fairman TV: “Our participation doesn’t mean we accept their proposal moving forward, we still have major issues that we will be discussing with the Chair and President (of NATAS), but as a collective whole, we don’t want to penalize our actors for NATAS’ mis-management.”

The 46th Annual Daytime Emmy submissions began earlier this week on November 12th, with the Daytime Emmys slated to be handed out in early May of 2019.

So, are you glad that the network soaps have lifted their threatened boycott so that your favorite performers, whose performances you have loved over the last 11 months can be acknowledged for their talents and hard work? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
